Ranger Superhero Comic Book

Wildlife rangers have one of the most critically important yet challenging, dangerous jobs in the world. Tasked with protecting the wildlife we all love so much, they are the first line of defense between species and criminals seeking to exploit them for financial gain. Unfortunately, rangers are often without proper gear, compensation and medical coverage to match the risk and importance of the job. When a friend of mine told me she was travelling for work and would see rangers in Cambodia, I wanted to send her with a little something to let them know how important they are to us.

I’ve had this idea in my head for months. Why not create a ranger superhero comic book series? I can’t think of a better main character! Heroes with massive hearts and bravery, limited by financial resources- Where’s Bruce when you need his donation?! Despite my best efforts, I’m unable to illustrate anything beyond a deciduous tree. Noting this, I reached out to colleagues to see if anyone would be willing to donate their time to help bring this comic to life. The result, two really amazing comic book illustrations! Thank you José and Tanvi for donating your time and incredible art skills to show rangers how important their work is to us!

Stay tuned for an update back from the field to see how the rangers reacted to the comic!
